    Jeremiah, I don't think that was the intent of the OP. I think it is a lighthearted look at how Santa is viewed in todays materialistic world.. I specifically reference the Tim Allen observation.

    Actually what troubled me about it was the history of Paganism is not tied to Christianity but Catholicism and I do not recognize Catholicism as any part of Christianity. So that is my trouble with his OP but I've decided I just won't respond to him again. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me about it, Westwall. I do not have anything further to say on his thread. Thanks again.

    I found it funny and very entertaining and I have no problem with it, but Santa to some is based on St. Nicholas who was a religious figure.

    He is the Allfather that is correct Boedicca, Odin is a traveller, he is a master of disguise, everyone will meet him once in their lives, when you look back you will realise this.
    I’ve worn my bronze Uppsala hammer for around 18 years.
    Hail Odin.
    Hail Ragnar!
